New York artist combines creativity with technology
June 20, 2012 by James
Although digital business cards and social media are typically associated with Internet-based networking, an exhibit at the Nassau County Museum of Art is showing people that technology can be a legitimate means of self-expression.
With its official start date of March 31 already passed, it is safe to say that Steven Slazman’s “Facebook Formatted (and other works)” has held up fairly well as an exhibit so far. Available for viewing in the Contemporary Directors Gallery, this showing was actually put together with the Contemporary Collectors Circle in mind. Open to everyone and held from 11:00 am to 4:45 pm, this is as good a chance as any to come out and appreciate the work of this talented artist.
What has given this particular exhibit the catchy name of “Facebook Formatted” is Salzman’s use of Facebook in the showcasing of his art. The images that he uploads are formatted to suit the same dimensions as those typically found on the social platform’s pages. Viewers can also expect to see collages, paintings, and prints as a part of this exhibition. With Astronomy and Physics listed as his inspirations, people will likely also be struck by the tone of Salzman’s work. Put simply, those who love the look and feel of modern art have a chance to step in and see what the work of this artist is really about.
Open to everyone, the cost of stopping by the museum will not come to more than $10 per person. In terms of creativity, this is a great option for Rockville Centre residents.
